Definition
Sustainability means the ability to complete building works using a minimum of the
earth’s resources, and having minimal negative effect on the environment.
2
Range for internal environment may include – control of temperature, moisture, air
quality, passive solar, sound, light, selection of materials, sustainability.
3
Range for external environment may include – control of the effects of climate,
seismic activity, corrosion, wind, moisture and thermal movement, moisture control,
sound, pollution, services wastes, the greater environment and the effects on and of
the built environment, sustainability.
4
Range of buildings – new and existing.

Please note
Providers must be granted consent to assess against standards (accredited) by NZQA, or
an inter-institutional body with delegated authority for quality assurance, before they can
report credits from assessment against unit standards or deliver courses of study leading
to that assessment.
Industry Training Organisations must be granted consent to assess against standards by
NZQA before they can register credits from assessment against unit standards.
Providers and Industry Training Organisations, which have been granted consent and
which are assessing against unit standards must engage with the moderation system that
applies to those standards.
Consent requirements and an outline of the moderation system that applies to this
standard are outlined in the Accreditation and Moderation Action Plan (AMAP). The
AMAP also includes useful information about special requirements for organisations
wishing to develop education and training programmes, such as minimum qualifications for
tutors and assessors, and special resource requirements.
